Toronto, Ontario (February 19, 2016) – Ashlar is pleased to acknowledge the 20th anniversary of the zoning changes made to revive the east and west industrial areas of King Street, Toronto, which resulted in explosive growth into the interesting and perpetually lively area it is today. We have made it our practice to specialize in character assets, especially within King Street and Toronto’s downtown. The first transaction in the Kings regeneration areas was done by Ashlar’s President Craig Smith, the Mountain Equipment Co-op building located at King and Spadina. Over the span of these 20 years Ashlar has also worked closely with Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust in the leasing and sale of 34 office and retail buildings, who have transformed alongside the momentum of King Street’s growth from a small private firm into one of Canada’s largest REITs by market cap. We are proud to be so deeply entrenched in the rich history of urban Toronto and its development into a bustling, fresh, and edgy space that is filled with a rich mix of uses, walkability, density, and variety of building-types.
